You know how women are always talking about stuff like shoes and housework? And getting fat? And expecting you to listen to their problems? Wouldn’t you rather be watching football and grunting with your friends? Enter the iHusband: possibly the most sexist iPhone app since Wobble. Motto: “It listens to your wife so you don’t have to.”
Shell out 99 cents for this app, which features six “husband types” (read: a black guy with dreadlocks, an Asian guy, and four young white guys) who, when summoned, will nod and say “mmmm-hmmm” and “really?” over and over again. Tap the screen when your woman stops yapping, and the iHusband will say something like, “No those jeans don’t make you look fat,” “I don’t want to have sex either, let’s just cuddle” and “Forget Football, let’s just watch Lifetime.”
Hilarious, right? So fresh and interesting! Get it? Women hate sex, and men like football!

“The iHusband is ‘guaranteed to make your wife think you care!’ claims [creator Frank] Chindamo. He knows first-hand because he tried this out on his own wife.”
That’s not to say we can’t take a joke. Here are some of our favorite examples of tapping stereotypical gender roles for humor that were actually funny:
This? Not so much. Save your buck and buy Angry Birds Space instead.
